The Miscarriage Association

The Miscarriage Association is a UK charity that offers support and information to anyone affected by miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy or molar pregnancy. Working from our office in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, we provide a range of support and information services, promote and support good healthcare practice and research, and work to raise public awareness and understanding of pregnancy loss.

We are a small staff team, with 4 full-time and 4 part-time staff, in addition to occasional freelance project workers. The staff team is further supported by the Board of Trustees and a range of volunteers.

The working environment

Our office is based over two floors in a listed building. Toilet and kitchen facilities are on the ground floor, but not as wheelchair-friendly as we would like. We aim to be an equal opportunities employer, however, and will make whatever adjustments we are able to in order to improve access.
